Paige Perkins: ‘Hot Mess’, an exhibition at the Arusha Gallery. Open Thurs to Sunday throughout October, 11am-6pm
October 1 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
An exhibition of work by the artist Paige Perkins running throughout October Thursday – sunday from 11am to 6pm each day.
Paige Perkins evokes the parallel power and vulnerability of the natural world in her vivid paintings. Throughout Hot Mess, nature gods and spirits are depicted in states of fury, despair, and play. Inspired by her move from London to the British countryside, working in a studio surrounded by wildlife and plants, Perkins reflects her own inner rage and anguish at humans’ destruction of the Earth. Taking an animistic world view, the artist channels her feelings into the creatures that fill her work, with many taking hybrid forms between person, plant, and beast. – Emily Steer, 2023
